Front 9 was in amazing condition and really great feel to it considering the time of year. Back 9 was a little boggy but expected and were advised so. Lovely course and done great holes.

This is a challenging and well thought-out course. I'd played it twice before and enjoyed it. On this Sunday afternoon, however, it took five hours for a two-ball with buggy. Somone informed the proshop that two or three four-balls were playing desperately slowly but only "had a chat with them" and failed to speed them up at all. All very frustrating. The three-ball in front were slaughtering the course and spent more time waiting on the tee than playing the hole.
The buggy cost £30 which the pro said was "good value". I typically pay £15-25. The buggy itself is GPS-programmed and spent the entire round bossing us about because we had the temerity to go 'near' a bunker or green (and 'near' was in no way 'near'). On the third hole it insisted I leave the fairway; I went to the path on the left; when I arrived 'near' the green (389 yards) and putted out I had to return 200 yards and somehow cross the fairway to get to the next tee.
I doubt very much that we'll go back there.

He would not play this course again.
